ManageEngine Ships Free iPhone App for Server, Website Monitoring Mobile Management Tool for IT – PingTool for iPhone – Monitors Network Availability

ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced the launch of PingTool for iPhone, the free iPhone native app for server monitoring. With PingTool for iPhone, administrators can now manage the availability of critical IT devices from an iPhone. Users can download PingTool for iPhone for free at http://ow.ly/h0eiP.

With smartphone adoption gaining ground among IT management professionals, demand is growing for a basic tool to keep tabs on the health of key network resources while on the go. PingTool for iPhone meets this demand by enabling IT staff to check the availability of critical servers and empowering IT to perform first-level troubleshooting tasks from their iPhones.

“Considering the influence mobile is having on network management, it is only fair that the industry equips its IT force with utilities that let them manage their network from anywhere,” said Shailesh Kumar Davey, vice president of engineering at ManageEngine. “The PingTool for iPhone is our latest contribution to that goal. The fact that this tool, like our other free tools, is fully functional and available at absolutely no cost makes it all the more compelling for users.”

Inside PingTool for iPhone

Using PingTool for iPhone, IT administrators can monitor network availability from their iPhones, getting a complete view of what is happening across their local networks and websites. PingTool for iPhone lets users:

  • Monitor the availability of servers, routers, other network devices and websites
  • Gain visibility on the trip time for ping packets and on the health of the hosts monitored
  • Monitor five hosts simultaneously
  • Traceroute or do a DNS lookup in the event of a host not responding for ping
  • Monitor the response time of critical websites

PingTool for iPhone is the latest addition to the ManageEngine suite of more than 20 free IT management tools. A complement to the free editions of ManageEngine applications, the company’s free tools suite is a collection of light-weight, C-based network management tools that start-ups and other financially-constrained organizations can rely on to manage their IT.

All ManageEngine free tools work “out of the box,” with a minimal learning curve and small resource footprint while offering real-time visibility into network resources. The company has bundled a launcher with the free tools to make it easier for users to download or launch the tools from a single location.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
